What to Wear

The semester is finally coming to an end and many of us are saying good luck to our classmates as we sit for the last time before the break for the dreaded final examination. When others grab a fresh pair sweatpants and hoodies after all-night study sessions, this Fashionista is tiptoeing on the wild side.

Dawning a roaringly fashionable leopard print vest, her closet will not succumb to the finals slump. Studies have shown that looking great makes you feel great, so what better time to look and feel fabulous than finals week. This Fashionista’s outfit is both comfortable and chic – requiring little effort or planning. This look is perfect when you are in over your head in study guides and group project meetings.

One can never go wrong with dark wash skinny jeans to clean up any look. This Fashionista chose a dark wash similar to these stretchy skinny jeans in a clean wash from American Eagle Outfitters. Combining the vest, the jeans and subtle black smoking flats with subtle gold studded details, the look is balanced with prints and solids without being overwhelming. Layering a simple closet staple like a long sleeve black top under the vest can help keep you warm when walking between buildings or sitting in colder classrooms.

Personally, my favorite basic T-shirts are from H&M. Their simple jersey tops fit perfectly without washing out or over-stretching. Accessorizing an outfit doesn’t always have to coordinate with every area of the outfit. This Fashionista added her own unique personal touches to her look with silver rings and charm bracelets that don’t clash with the gold details in the vest.

One Simple Change: For colder days, I would add a cute toboggan like this one from Urban Outfitters to keep warm while running errands.
